For the second time ever UFC returns to Kansas City for a headlining showdown featuring former champion Max Holloway and fifth-ranked contender Arnold Allen 💪
The fight marks exactly 6 years to the day since UFC has been to The City of Fountains, and while it’s not a highly frequented venue, the last visit became a turning point for several fighters who went on to dominate in the octagon, cementing their place in UFC history 👊
Here are some of the highlights:
🏆Rose Namajunas, who defeated Michelle Waterson by submission in the co-main event, went on to win the UFC women's strawweight championship later that year with a stunning upset victory over Joanna Jedrzejczyk.
🏆Robert Whittaker, who defeated Ronaldo Souza by TKO in a middleweight bout, also went on to win the UFC middleweight championship in 2017 with a victory over Yoel Romero.
With such a memorable history, we anticipate nothing less than multiple electrifying moments in Kansas City on Saturday, which is why the reward for the UFC Kansas City Hybrid Challenge will be a Fandom Moment from the fight, a collectible that will be voted on and chosen by the Challenge winners themselves. 💥
HOW TO PLAY
Earn a Fandom Moment by completing BOTH of the below Criteria. The Moment will be minted to Challenge completion!
Deadline: Collectors have until 11AM PT on Tuesday, April 18 to complete the Challenge. We will take a snapshot at that time to determine who meets the Challenge criteria.
The Burn Tool will be deactivated at the deadline. But it sure is on right now. 🚨
Each collector can complete the Challenge multiple times.
TWO REQUIREMENTS TO WIN!
Complete BOTH (2) criteria to earn the Fandom Moment. You may complete multiple times for multiple rewards.
Burn ANY 3 Series 0 Featherweight Contender Moments (3 Moments total - They do NOT have to be a unique group of 3. Can be any 3, including duplicates)
- Julio Arce
- Edson Barboza
- Dan Ige
- Ilia Topuria
Own ALL 3 of the following Challenger Moments (3 Moments total):
- Max Holloway
- Ion Cutelaba

The Burn Tool will be active until the Challenge Deadline. Only Moments burned during the KANSAS CITY Hybrid Challenge window will be counted. No burns from previous Challenges will be counted. Both two criteria must be completed to earn the reward.
Want multiple Rewards? You may complete the above Criteria multiple times for multiple Moment Rewards! Both criteria must be completed for each additional reward a collector wishes to earn.
CHAMPION CLUB PASS
Champion Club Pass is a special boost applied to certain Champion Rarity Tier Moments for use in a Challenge, and ultimately to earn a Reward!
Champion Club Pass: Own 1 of the following Champion Moments to automatically complete the collection portion of the criteria. COLLECTORS MUST STILL BURN. (1 Moment Total):
- Amanda Nunes
- Alexander Volkanovski
Want multiple Rewards? You may qualify for the Champion Club Pass multiple times for multiple Moment Rewards! You must still complete the Burn Criteria for each Champion Club Pass Moment held.
ABOUT THE REWARD
Winners of the Challenge will have the ability to vote on a Series 1 Fandom moment to be minted from UFC fight night: Holloway vs Allen premiering on Saturday, April 15, 2023 in Kansas City.
Once the challenge ends on Tuesday April 18th at 11am PT, Challenge winners will receive an email and have 24 hours to vote on what highlight they want turned into the reward from UFC Kansas City. We will then airdrop the Fandom reward to qualifying collectors based on final snapshot.
One caveat, as much as we love Arnold Allen and Brandon Royval, we won’t be voting on either since they already have an S1 Fandom moment each. We’re excited to give someone else a shot this round to have their moment cemented in the UFC Strike universe 😤
IN THE DETAILS
This UFC-licensed Reward NFT will be minted and distributed in the days following the Challenge Deadline. The Burn Tool will also be deactivated at the deadline.
Collectors may earn as many Rewards as they would like.
Reminder: Champion Club Pass does not guarantee the reward. Collectors holding a qualifying Champion Club Moment must still complete the Burn Criteria.
